Book Review: 100 Ways to Take Better Landscape Photographs

by Heather Forcier | July 1, 2005

Book by Guy EdwardesI took notice of Guy Edwardes’ photography several years ago and was pleased to recently have the opportunity to review his book. After reading 100 Ways to Take Better Landscape Photographs I feel better equipped to make even more of my time in the field capturing the scenic images I want.

One hundred ideas and insights are presented with one paragraph on each plus the caption which accompanies an inspiring, illustrative photo. Topics include preparation, setting up, seeing different opportunities, avoiding that which might negatively impact results, composition, technical considerations, and more. Also among the book’s 144 pages are specific considerations such as approaching agricultural scenes, mountains, cityscapes, waterfalls, the four seasons, plus ideas on recording patterns, themes, seasonal changes, and abstracts.

The book offers a wide variety of concepts to stimulate a photographer’s creativity in approaching landscape photography, and readers will benefit from the experience and photographic skills of its accomplished author. In a pursuit such as nature photography, anything that can promote growth and personal innovation is valuable, and Guy’s book is just such a resource.
